Copenhagen's got first dibs on casual cool. Photographer Alona Andersen advises us on what's hot now

Photographer Alona Andersen

A freelance photographer, and sometimes model, who just completed her master’s of science in IT, Alona Andersen grew up about an hour south of Copenhagen. Since moving to the Danish capital seven years ago, she’s fallen in love with the city’s food, design and arts scenes, especially since Copenhagen is compact and friendly enough that all three scenes often overlap.

Easy to get around on foot or by bike, Copenhagen offers a sumptuous mix of classic and modern architecture, punctuated with trendy eating and shopping options. It’s also very green, at least in the summer. “The city has a real sustainable focus, with the idea of merging people and nature.” The metropolitan region of about two million people stretches across the islands of Zealand and Amager. “There’s water everywhere and in the summer, people are jumping in the canals.” Here are Andersen’s picks for the best of Copenhagen, in her own words.
